About Us

We opened Carmela Restaurant in August 2010 after a 3 month labour of love to renovate the beautiful 16th Century building we inhabit with our vision of traditional Sicily meets Horsham!

As a family, we have over 50 years experience in the catering, hospitality and food industries. We used our collective knowledge to ensure we created a family friendly menu and atmosphere that is also transferable to the evening guests wanting a good quality meal out or to celebrate special occasions.

A great deal of time and effort goes in to the creation of our menus and the focus on customer service and quality and we pride ourselves in being different then other restaurants – being truly independent and authentic!

In 2012 we expanded our family business with the addition of the Deli in the Carfax that sells some fantastic typically Italian produce as well as serving up tasty lunch time and snack foods or dishes to take home..plus the best coffee in Horsham!

We have always hosted celebration events and continue to offer bespoke packages for all occasions as well as a handmade cake service to make life even easier when planning your special event.

We look forward to welcoming you soon…and welcoming back our many fantastic regulars.
